    That’s not how it went. They all cheered for Obi-Wan and then you hear a buncha yeahs in response to his question after the whole crowd had just cheered the show. 0/10 effort

    What do you know about it? Your whole reason on this forum is to shitpost and to demonstrate that you know nothing about the stuff you talk about.

    Generally I think it's pretty fine so far.

    I am not so sure where to put and what to do with that con jedi, and it seems a little strange that someone would be able to con people with small technical gimmicks (aka "magnets") in a world with space ships and holograms.

    And that Leia chase, it went from Benny Hill style slapstick to No Country for Old men murder in a blink. Like what?

    But overall the direction seems fine. The start with the younglings might also mean they cater to some of the memes. Curious of we get some "hello there", "I have the high ground" or "I don't like sand" references. And let's see if the inquisition might come behind "Ben Kenobis" real alter ego after all.

    It's 'Their', not 'There'. You're asking someone if English isn't their native tongue while failing at distinguishing basic words.

    Yeah, a minor typo vs. a fundamental and repeated misunderstanding of definitions. You got me.

    Holy shit, man. You used a - instead of a — while going around criticizing other people's literacy and grammar? Not even taking the half second to use a double one in its place at least? Tsk, tsk.

    Thrawn got to live because he was a) clever enough to not state the obvious, and b) was a highly valued tool for Vaders Master.
    A few seconds later, and you go and fail to use an apostrophe? Oh my stars and garters.

She likely doesn't know much about his conversion. She was probably fed half truths like Obi is responsible for Vader being in the suit but they probably fed her tails of treason among the Jedi. She probably thinks the 501st was killing traitors and not committing genocide at the temple.

    Someone learns Vader's name is Anakin. So? Unless they were a war buff, most of the Jedi records were destroyed or altered, it's unlikely they would connect Anakin the war hero to Vader. No one knows the families of the Jedis, it's not viewed as something important or notable in accordance to the way the Jedi operate. Maybe someone knows but I'm not sure sure Anakin knew much about Owen either. So it's completely plausible she had no idea Luke even existed, let alone was right under her nose.
    Right, but she knew not just his name, but his surname, this does not look like one surname common likes jones, if they did a scan on the planet, to look for a jedi, the name of the people would have come up and she would do the connection.

    I was also thinking she could be the firs tentative of Vader having an apprentice

    It's not a minor typo, it shows a lack of fundamental understanding of the language. Try again, obvious burner account.

    Yes, saying 2 people of the same race look alike when they don’t and they also don’t sound alike is pretty racist. Welcome to the 20th century. Let us know when you’re ready to join us in the 21st.

    Middle age white man calling other people racist, welcome to the 21 century.

    They do look alike in the episode, you are the one seeing as a race issue, because maybe, the racist is yourself.

    No, they don't. They also don't sound anything alike. Stop trying to gaslight people to distract from your stupid comment.

    The in-universe explanation for 'Skywalker' was a surname is that it's common...even though we only see 3 (4 counting Rey I guess) people will the last name.

    Ah well, if its that common i guess, but it sounds a lot cheesy to be common

    Oof. It's always great to see Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan, but everything else about these first two episodes have just been very mediocre to me. Some parts were just flat-out boring. A lot of the dialogue also feels very awkward (and that's saying quite a lot for a Star Wars film). I hope the rest of the episodes are better, but was surprised to learn there are only six.

    Riiiight. The problem is that I don’t confuse two asian men who don’t look alike and don’t sound alike. It’s not your inability to tell them apart.

    Nah, first you mistook him, and that's fine, and then you said 'they sure look alike with that makeup', which they don't. You're the guy who made the stupid comment, and now you won't let it go.

    We don’t know the surnames of the vast majority of people we see.

    My inability to tell then apart is one thing, saying its because is "racism" is completely under your bigotry.
